The use of the argon on its own results in a decrease of the heat transfer coefficient of only about 10% compared to a standard glass. The low-emission glass units U = 1.1 W/m2K and U = 1.0 W/m2K recommended by us, include modern low-E coatings and argon and cause a reduction of the heat transfer coefficient by about 70% compared to standard glass.
What causes the evaporation of glass units from the outside?
